The Drablands are a large overarching location in Tri Force Heroes.[1] It is the world that contains every Level.

Features and Overview

The Drablands are described as a world filled with dangerous enemies and obstacles.[2] It features many lands of various regions, including woodlands, ice caverns, and deserts, among many others. It is the domain of Lady Maud, also known as the Drablands witch.[3] The Drablands can only be entered through the Triforce Gateway in Hytopia Castle, and only a trio of chosen heroes may venture through it.[3][4]

After The Lady curses Princess Styla to wear an ugly irremovable outfit, King Tuft searches for chosen heroes, as only a trio of such can enter the Drablands. If Link is without allies, the Doppel Master will awaken two Doppels in his image to accompany him into the lands.

Areas

See Coliseum for the identically named Coliseum levels.

The Drablands are divided into nine regions called Areas. Each of the first eight Areas has four Levels, which are each divided into five sections called Stages.

Drablands Challenges

Main article: Drablands Challenge

Once an Area's guardian boss is defeated, the Drablands Challenges are unlocked. These challenges provide three more difficult versions of each Level, such as completing it with a time limit or with fewer Heart Containers. Materials awarded at the end of a Level differ slightly, allowing the Links to earn better rewards by tackling harder missions. Once all of an Area's challenges are completed, Link can visit King Tuft in order to receive some of the rarest Materials that can only be obtained through the Coliseum otherwise. Once all 128 Drablands Challenges are completed, Link is rewarded with a Gold Rupee worth 300.

Trivia

Nomenclature

The term "drab" can mean boring, or a lack of color and brightness. This is in contrast to Hytopia's fashion-obsessed nature.
